In Washington, D.C.’s Eckington neighborhood, there are plans to construct approximately 328 multi-family apartments over retail. Nine two-story loft units will be devoted to artist live-work spaces at low-income levels. The entire project will span 312,398 square feet.
D.C.-based developer Foulger-Pratt also plans on constructing a 9,745-square-foot courtyard with a pool on the 1.79-acre site. UrbanTurf further reported that the developer hopes to exceed LEED-NC Silver designation requirements. There will also be approximately 124 below-grade parking spots.
According to the Planned Unit Development (PUD), there will be a new park immediately to the south of the project, extending to the north with more than 20,000 square feet of open space. To the east of the project, there will be a new park constructed by the NoMA Parks Foundation.
